Rory Dobner

Liberty shop in London is a treasure-trove, each visit is a promise of finding the best selection of niche skincare, fashion, accessories and home-ware, with this inimitable chic-quirky touch.

My latest coup de coeur goes to Rory Dobner China home-ware. Rory Dobner creates exquisite ink illustrations inspired by his passion for Victorian England and Animalia on home-ware, tableware and wall suspensions, his Ink Pen illustrated fine Bone China tableware are simply unique and incredibly delicate, see the Monocle Cheschire Cat plate illustrated below.
